Minimally invasive percutaneous endoscopic thoracolumbar foraminotomy in large-breed dogs–a comparative study
This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of percutaneous endoscopic foraminotomy (PEF) for the treatment of intervertebral disc herniation of the thoracolumbar spine in large-breed dogs by comparing it with open hemilaminectomy (OH). Six large-breed canine cadavers were used in the present study. A barium and agarose mixture (BA-gel) simulating intervertebral disc herniation was injected into the spinal canal at two intervertebral spaces (T12-T13, L2-L3) of the thoracolumbar spine in each cadaver. PEF and OH were randomly allocated to the sites in each cadaver. Computed tomography was perf...

Comparison of enteric pathogen incidence between dairy calves and Korean native calves
From July to December 2022, we investigated the incidence of enteric pathogens causing diarrhea in calves under 100 days old at 22 farms across Korea. A total of 354 calves (including 247 dairy calves and 107 Korean native calves) were included. We used commercially available rapid diagnostic kits to identify five enteric pathogens, including bovine rotavirus (BRV), bovine coronavirus (BCoV), Cryptosporidium. Escherichia coli (E. coli), and Giardia. This study investigated how factors such as age, season, and birth month, which can influence the incidence of intestinal pathogens, affect the in...

Successful treatment of dog bite-induced sepsis in a dog receiving long-term immunosuppressant
A 5-year-old spayed female mixed-breed dog, previously receiving 7 months of immunosuppressive therapy for pemphigus foliaceus, presented to our referral hospital with a history of dog bites on the right forelimb, chest, and flank 4 days prior to presentation. Physical examination revealed a rectal temperature of 38.6℃; heart rate of 130 beats per minute; panting; systolic blood pressure of 60 mmHg; and swelling, purulent discharge, warmth, pain, and lameness in the right forelimb. The laboratory investigation revealed neutropenia and elevated C-reactive protein levels. Suppurative neutrophi...

Suspected cytosine arabinoside induced interstitial lung disease in a dog with meningoencephalitis
An 11-year-old neutered male Dachshund dog weighing 7 kg presented with acute onset of respiratory distress after subcutaneous administration of cytosine arabinoside (CA). The patient previously diagnosed with meningoencephalitis of unknown origin and was being treated with oral prednisolone, levetiracetam, potassium bromide, gabapentin, and periodic subcutaneous CA administration (50 mg/m2, q 12 h, subcutaneous, 4 times, every 3 weeks). The patient developed tachypnea with labored respiratory effort after 9th CA administration. Thoracic radiograph revealed bilateral diffuse interstitial to al...

Clinical outcomes of traumatic brain injury dogs underwent CT or MRI
Three dogs (7-year-old, neutered male Chihuahua; case 1, 1-year-old, spayed female mixed breed; case 2, 10-month-old, female Maltese; case 3) were referred to Jeju Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital for traumatic brain injury. All three patients exhibited abnormal neurological symptoms. The patients were diagnosed through medical history obtained from their caregivers and through computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. Structural brain abnormalities were observed in two dogs through CT scans and in one dog through MRI. Decompression therapy with mannitol was admi...

A case report of runting-stunting syndrome in a broiler farm
A broiler farm in Jeonbuk province experienced high mortality due to decreased feed intake and poor growth, and pathological evaluation of 11- and 17-day-old broilers was performed, which led to the diagnosis of runting-stunting syndrome. From the start of the rearing period to shipment, 18.4% of the chickens in the three barns experiencing continuous culling and mortality were affected, compared to 7.7% in the other five barns. Gross findings on the 11-day-old broiler chicken revealed proventricular dilatation and hemorrhage, intestinal hemorrhage, urate deposition in the pericardium and rena...
